I had plans today to do some mechanicing putting the heater stuff back together.
But after feeding the chickens I just didn’t feel like doing that so I did some chair hopping instead.
I also puttered with a few other things to do with that job but nothing serious I was mostly taking the day off from any serious mechanicing.
Took out this plum tree
Grape vine pruning
I was doing it and almost had it done when I took a break to go get some fresh carrots from the garden. They are tender and sweet right now. My brother says I should cook some up but so far I’ve just been eating them raw as they are so good.
Close call for the chickens
While I was sitting eating some carrots I heard a commotion over by the grape vine I was working on. I thought it was just some chicken’s having a squabble so I looked to see who was doing what to who.
To my surprise I saw Rosy running towards a fence and run into it and at the same moment I saw a red tailed hawk pull out of a dive almost running into the fence.
It happened so fast I almost didn’t see it. Rosy lost some feathers on the fence but seemed to be ok. The hawk was a big one, larger than the chickens.
I did some more chair hopping and it was dark so I went on in the house for the day. Just after dark I come back outside to shut the chickens in for the night as they are all on the roost by then.
That was my day puttering around the yard.. Nice day.
